Hi there Fall Intrigues Basket SwapPARTICIPANTS. Just a reminder, to get your baskets sent by October 7th. This gives you a couple of weeks. It is coming up quickly. I just returned from up north, where there was a definite nip in the air. Here, we are excited because the high is only suppose to be 90 today. Whoo hoo! I can't wait for the cooler weather!!!!!!!!!Oh, and check out the wonderful eye-candy from my last two posts.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
